I give him the whole spiel fair. Like when you're dating or do you mean like just like friendship wise across the board. If somebody is like not already. I tend to most of my friends are sex workers this Or have been are retired. So if some if i don't know what somebody whether or not they've been in the industry. I keep it pretty under wraps until. I decide whether or not i can trust them. Pretty much That makes sense. I mean because people have preconceived notions and they're fucking judgmental like people are just. The general public is honestly very poorly behaved and bad want. Yeah they could use some manners a lot of the times. Have you ever dated anyone. Who had an issue with what you do. Not very okay. I mean honestly. That sounds great. Yeah it's really show. Yeah like truly like really. You've never dated a single person who is like by eight best. I'm jealous. I tend to date people that i already know. I don't usually like you know we're like already friends or have friends and commoner were like connected in this like wacky poly-amorous web of people. So i kind of already have an idea of what they're like. Though some people can surprise you and suddenly they're pissed that yours ex-worker worker but by and large i've talked to or dated or hooked up with an talked to later friends. Everybody's been very chill. What a dream. Yeah so do you like a combination of like out calls in in calls or is it only out calls like what what is what is the situation like i would say that it's my primarily in calls And i rent an apartment that i use for an calls. Yeah okay Yeah i mean. Oh inca alcohol. If you don't know listeners in called literally just means like in your house out call me and you're going out somewhere and then bb. W i didn't explain big beautiful woman. It is like a porn term. It's you know it's just a bigger woman on screen and we get pushed to one little category in in very rarely do you get to dip in the other ones. It is wild like fat woman in like the p. category. Yeah i could see two pretty good. You know not just having me. There is virtually sealed. Appear anywhere anywhere. You wanna piece of where. You'd be surprised that that. I have definitely gotten pee shy when requested for that in my early years now Now i have. Everything's so easy at this point but Jahmai early years. I got a couple of different times and had to be like well. Sorry can't perform right now. Have people tell you exactly what they want before the appointment or is it like you make an appointment and then once you get there. They're like this is what i'm into in. This is what i want. So i try to keep all of my like the all the talking beforehand camera. That is like emails text messages. All that stuff trying to keep it really g. rated primarily for safety i use encrypted texting and encrypted e-mail safety why does it keep why does keeping something g. rated factor into safety and on it. I think it's more for my peace of mind than it is. Actually i think in my head. It's like legal ramifications and like hara evidence like y- stuff like that though. I think if the vice squad wanted information they could find it regardless of how hard i try to keep it chill So it's probably more for my peace of mind than anything else also. I don't sexed for free. There are sometimes people will get really excited and they wanna like write me a whole novel about how they want our date to go and while i would love to do that and actually love sexting. It's one of my very favorite things. I don't do it for free. Because i'm incredibly talented at it.

Do you prefer bb. W or do you prefer fat. Like what are. What is the adjective. So i honestly prefer fat over anything else. But w is such like an adult industry word. Threes identifier that. I use that for everything. Because when men i mean sometimes when men like google type like fat escort they might tie Fat sex worker but usually they will use like porn words which vw is the porn identifier. So that's why. It's all my stuff. But i prefer fat. I also prefer fat. Steve harvey show and he was like years ago.

Only i walk around ono. She's looking at me. And i go bigger than oo movement. I don't care so how i mean. I don't wanna like sex work. Is you know kind of dangerous. So i don't wanna like holy give away like how you operate but like how do you go about getting clients. Is that an okay question. I'll let you know not perked up great great so there are lots of ads sites which i didn't know i had a lot of friends who were sex workers an end like the full sex work in full service sex industry before i got into it and i had no idea that that kind of there's just tons and tons and tons of websites for it so there's add sides with varying humanity. I would say okay. There's review boards. So there's like the yelp for escorts which is as awful as you could imagine it to be cooking why some of them are worse than others. I won't name names but people will know what i'm talking about. Wait that is so fucking wild. I cannot wrap my mind around someone hiring somebody for sex and then raiding in review and not only do they rate the experience they rate on a one to ten scale. What i look like what my titties are like one. The atmosphere of my place was like all that stuff like. I've had friends get really poor views because somebody was like oh. I thought my car was broken into while i was inside of just like why because you like saw black person on the street like what like third. It's yeah it's really bad. It's funny because specifically. I never leave a place and i'm like oh i need to get on that yelp review or like or whatever so it's just like to like leave sex an nba. Like who i'm steamed. I'm gonna get my car a piece of my mind. That's us special fucking type of person yet totally and it you know. I have had fine reviews. I've had. I've never had anyone to review me vindictively But people have that all the time. And it's really it's really upsetting. Because then people read that stuff and you know i feel like most people can be like okay. One bad review must have been his problem but not always unlike it there are rankings like people are ranked and it's bullard. It is wild wild type. It's really strange to like. I got into this like my own boston to like. Be in charge of how do things and then to still have. Men like be kind of in charge of like where i rank. I mean it truly fucking feels that most sex work. Yes you're your own boss. But it does feel like i mean if you are catering to men men filter your experience you stripping usually an owners a man i i mean usually there's man he's the one who's dictating. How much you pay into the club. How much you get to keep. Its like it's really make they get to choose the aesthetic of everything really. It's fucking wild. It's a it is interesting. I wish there was more female. You know or female identifying people who own clubs or whatever. I was talking to count hollis and she was talking about lake. Strippers owning their own clubs. And i was like yes. That's fucking race to be one in the pacific northwest. Yeah yeah in portland right. Yeah but it's no more. It's no more it hasn't been it's been gone for many years. I oh i see. Yeah so when. You are meeting with clientele so i don't really have this experience people hook up with where they're like. You're my first fatty. You're my first big girl or like west is wild..
Indianapolis Colts' T.Y. Hilton to Miss Start of Season
"T Y. Hilton expected to miss the start of the regular season after re aggravating a neck injury. At practice last week earlier on ESPN radio are Courtney Cronin in Shape Peppler. The Colts need to let go stage their locker room like they need to take a page out of the Baltimore Orioles and what they did there in breaking a 19 game losing streak because it just feels like injury after injury for them Now, next on the list is T Y Hilton, who's got a back problem. They don't know the diagnosis with That, But I know Courtney, you've got some more insight as to what the deal is with T Y Hilton in Indianapolis. Yeah, Apparently he was injured in practice on Wednesday. This didn't come from the preseason game that they just played on Friday. That happened early, and then he came back out and he was able to finish practice. But now we find out Shea that he has a back and a neck injury and he's out indefinitely and that comes on the heels. And, like 24 hours, they find out that and then Sam Ehlinger, the backup quarterback as a knee injuries out for 4 to 6 weeks. I think that this Indianapolis team for all the steps forward that they were able to take in the last few weeks, getting Carson Wentz back at practice, the good at least, you know, positive news that they got with Quentin Nelson, who had the same foot injury that Carson once has. That it's not going to be the end of his season, either, And then they're dealt this blow the big one here, though, as I look at all of these injuries and trying to figure out which is the worst one is probably Ehlinger because you don't know when Carson once is really going to be ready to play. Is it going to be weak? One? They haven't put that timetable on him. Yet. That is still two weeks away. Your backup quarterback right now is Jacob Eason like it was supposed to be Ehlinger. But now he's out 4 to 6 weeks. That's something that I don't think is a should give them any confidence. That's a Big below Hilton, Like many
NFL Preseason: Indianapolis Colts' Jacob Eason Outshines Sam Ehlinger Win Over Carolina Panthers
"The final. Preseason game of this weekend was in indianapolis. The colts they beat the panthers twenty one to eighteen one more. Exciting games of the entire sleet we had. Pj walker formerly of the xfl re looked really good for the carolina. Panthers i mean really good. He was ten twenty. One hundred. Sixty one yards touched out a really explosive athlete. That was moving very fast. He can throw on. The run was ripping throws up the sidelines and again a great backup who could see a lot of time. Depending on what. Sam darnold does but good backup to have cuba hubbard. He'd a huge run after escaping from the pile. He can be a really nice complement to christian. Mccaffrey for carolina. If he does what he did at oklahoma state you tears marsal marshalls kind of show a little bit of what he can do. The y rec- route. Lsu who some thought. He would be a first round pick but he was second round. Pick he had three receptions for eighty yards Takeaway from this game as jacob and he looked pretty solid and the colts are going with jacob and sam etlinger two quarterbacks with a lot of experience but easing looks like the more superior quarterback he he was fifteen to twenty one hundred eighty three yards another again. Another guy with some really impressive throws a all lot of dimes this weekend but he had some really impressive throws down the field. Sam longer was ten fifteen fifty five yards. He interception but offers a little bit more of that mobility aspect to his game. So it'll be interesting to see how that battle plays out but reports coming out this week or that went his injury return. Does luke

A wild and whimsical world of flesh-eating plants
"Pretty much up ended all of our lives before covid nineteen. I got to travel to the perth hills in search of some beautiful flesh-eating beings so it's a warm dry day in calamander national park with bright blue sky above yellow worth crunchy underfoot the yellowish shrub. Whole yes we go. Yes laura and i are looking for something special in the bush it's tiny but shawnee and so it should catch season dawn. These the ninetieth be baltimore. Rare impression. s- potential specimens not. Oh that's a tremendous one. So this is Dresser a guy again tia and it's named because it's pretty giant. He's that's about fifty sixty centimeters high. Yeah and it's like a little mini. trae it is. Yeah like these are. Actually the leaves the plan. Yeah so the the flowers are up the very top here. Just in bad i think at the moment but the leaves are they do look like a flower bill. Little son to me and so it's a little pad that is surrounded by sticky hairs and what you'll notice it on some of them. The sticky has wrapped around into the center and now Can you see the little sort of bug remains in the middle there and then others are out ready to catch something new so hi. My name's lois gates. And i'm a botanist from western australia. And i'm doing my phd on plants but this young botanist has an alter-ego floor escapes. Yes so that's my twitter and instagram.

If got dave the little shop of horrors that sort of thing or a new car and killed but it even goes back much earlier than that. It's not for the greater glory of science. I just want us to survive. Even a botanist said there was the story of a gemini explorer in the madagascan john. Google is it a plant coming across this atrocious cannibal tree central nervous system which had these serpent like branches which captured a woman and coiled. Its branches around and around. There is actually the atrocious kind of betray or if anyone's going to find it maybe that just not come back all that don't usually pull themselves out of the ground chase you. He sees the depiction of this atrocious tree. It looks so much like a dresser in the way that it's those separate like branches the sticky glands dresser and the way that they wrap around and coil around the pool. Woman is the same way that these dresser wrap around the insect pry. But yeah they. They always get painted as these vicious preaches. I do tend to notice that. A lot of the time the victims in these stories Women don't like that aspect. Yeah there's a whole gender story to be talked about here. I think definitely. And i mean often when we talk about verse plants. We often hear about charles. Darwin because dow indeed right the first scientific book all about kind of verse. Plants gave the first scientific evidence that they are actually able to capture and digest insect prey. But there's been a lot of amazing women who have also contributed to converse plant science and our understanding of ecology throughout history and. I'm really interested in their stories as well. And so am i this week. We are in wnba which incredibly is home to up to a third of the world's converse plant species. I wanna find out why that eason have.

"They're certainly all the very very attractive and they make you think this is going to be fun. This is going to be something that i'm going to enjoy. Yeah they are like. There's i never thought a lot about book covers before. But then i thought you know what no really they can. You don't judge a book by its cover but you do buy one sometimes because of its cover and it's it's its own communications so i really love the covers. Well now. let's get to some of the big questions i wonder about. And they're really just one well. Three part question i guess. Why do you right. Why do you think any of us right. And why do we write these kinds of crazy stories about things. That aren't real. It never could be. I write because. I have something to say and i am. Maybe just arrogant enough to think that it's something that needs to be read or heard like i have something important to say or something interesting to thing worthwhile to say And because i like creating stories the second part remind me the second part of the third part is why do i write science fiction and fantasy. The second part is why in the bigger picture. Do you think any of us right. Why you human being. think stories are one of the ways that we make sense of the world. I think we obviously we told stories long before he ever wrote them down. But i think stories stories and narratives are one of the ways that we make sense of things we just we understand stories stories. Click with us in ways. That just broad dato or reports. Don't necessarily we do like we like to be able to see ourselves. We like to empathized. We want to have feelings stories. Let us have feelings even if they also seriously can make us think you're studying literature would seem to indicate that there are. What's the reader kipling. There's one in a thousand ways of constructing tribal laser something. There's a lot of ways to tell stories. Aren't there yeah. I mean there's culturally historically all over the place and it's just it's fascinating to me what they all have in common at the same time of and looking at all of the differences just all the different ways you know from structure to to content because i loved the medieval stuff because that to me was fantasy that was you know we still had magic. We still had that. Mythic worldview the natural philosophy before the age of enlightenment and so understanding the world and making sense of things that don't make sense. That's partly part of why. I think people write stories so much is we're trying to make sense of things that may or may not make sense and stories are imposing structure. So why then tell stories of fantastic.

But i haven't really run into myself. No i haven't either and granted. I don't have a huge number of books behind me. But i have not run into a bad editor yet. Now that i've said that. But no us long as i stay with katie. I'll be fine It's one of those things that i learned from. Dnd is that there needs to be a healthy level of willingness to collaborate in a willingness to listen as a writer to what other people say but at the same time keep that balancing act and know what you be able to at some point as i always tell my students. Trust yourself trust yourself. It's you know these. this is opinion. this is suggestion. But it's not holy writ and it's not you know it's not to get a grade it's you have to be happy with the thing that you are writing and you have to fight for the thing that you are writing but at the same time. Be willing to say okay. But what am i trying to do. What is the editor or the feedback. Telling me that. I'm perhaps not doing that. I mean to do. Are you teaching any creative writing or as teaching literature and so you're talking about essays when you're doing. I'm teaching the worst of the worst. I'm teaching writing composition first year writing to non majors And i say the worst of the worst. They're my favorite my absolute favorite. But they're the ones who are hostile to writing to begin with and the hate to read and so there are a hostile audience and they're just awesome when you can get them to to realize what they can do with writing that it doesn't need to be their enemy but it can be their ally and it can be their tool or their weapon. Some of them discover. It's this is a weapon. Yes yes it can be. Go go with god. Small one do that. Do you find that teaching other people writing has benefited your own writing.

And sometimes it's really clean. And sometimes i know i'm gonna part of it and sometimes it's just lake slogging. I know there's going to be a problem. And i'm going to have to come back to it but i can't obsess over it. Here's the thing that i learned. I trashed ninety. Two thousand word not completed manuscript a couple years ago because i got into the the rut of oem writing it all. I'm changing my mind about what i'm doing. Oh i really don't like this. Let me go back and keep revising the hell out of it. And i just destroyed it like by the end i couldn't. There was nothing to resurrect from this. It was a pile of bones. It was just there's ideas there's moments that are really awesome and you have no clue what you've done because you've revised it to death so never do that again. That is what i learnt. Never do that again. Just write it even it's crappy and then when you when you do get to the end of it what does your vision processes like. And do you do use beta alpha readers or anything like that or does that over. I do have a beta reader. My best my best friend forever. My bff from high school My i d m to the first person to get me into. Dnd and she reads poor thing. She reads almost the raw stuff. She will read Pretty much anything. I send her bless her heart and sometimes it's chapter by chapter sometimes. It's an entire manuscript. But even i won't send her the very raw most rostov. I'll just once i've done. The the vomit draft of the negative. Make sure that there are complete sentences that i remember what the heck is going on that. There's you know there's a little bit of a voice happening mostly at that point. I'm looking for plot holes. Character is never my problem Rarely my problem but there can occasionally be plot inconsistencies. And since she's one of my players indian. Dnd who will also punch holes in my plots on a regular basis She's good at finding those for me. So she's my reader and then i go through and clean it up again and then i'll probably at that point i'll send it to my agent. You know once. I've gone through it a few times and decided it doesn't suck then i'll send it to her and then she gives me notes which have been getting shorter as the years have been going on. So that's good. I guess. I'm getting better at turning in good drafts. Were kind of notes. do you get. Sometimes it's sometimes it structural. There's there was the memorable. Okay yes but i think you need another fifteen thousand words because you dropped this arc in the middle. Oh damn you noticed okay. Yeah i need to pick that up Sometimes it's it's you know the big structural things where you need to come back to this or you need to play this part up on. This seems really flat. Because i don't know what's happening with. The voyeur is but this character seems really distant so those levels those sorts of comments are what i get from from her and she's she levels it up.

Oh yeah definitely. Because i have read things that i would never have chosen to read In the course of getting the degrees like you're you get asked to read stuff. You would never pick up the off the shelf on purpose and you learn even if you don't like it and there was a lot did not like i learned to appreciate different ways to tell stories different ways to different techniques different things in a box different structures like you know. Oh i've now met read medieval romances. I see this is okay. This is how this works. This is how this works. Okay so i learn a lot of different techniques for for ways that stories can be told and then they just sort of put them all in my little bag of tricks and then yank them out as necessary so definitely that has helped me as a writer i think just knowing the breadth of what's out there.

Investors flee UK stock funds on Brexit worries
"Kate barely has been asking investors fund managers wealth advisers, what impacts the torturous path towards Brexit has. Been having on investment decisions. And she's here with us now to discuss related thinking, Kate we were supposed to be leaving me a U two weeks game we didn't. Instead, we have a series of further delays to the Brexit process. Given the uncertainty is now being prolonged and how're investors responding? We'll invest his on the Sunday plea confused and a bit nervous about what to do. I'm bear in mind that the process all the most recent kind of machinations have taken place at peak ISIS Eason which has made it even more difficult for a lot of people because they're thinking they won't fill up there either allowance before tax here, and but they're very nervous to put money into markets right now, particularly not knowing what might happen in the future. So that's meant for of investors that they have been putting money in cash into their stocks and shares Eissa and holding it there for longer with the plan of either just holding there for longer of uncertainty or drip, feeding it into the market when they feel a bit more. Comfortable couldn't Hungary's London. The volume of cash held in stocks and shares ICES over week on the platform has doubled compared to the same point last year and other platforms the saying that people are just holding more cash in the in the stocks and shares before so I think that that is the main thing that people seem to have been doing. Well, I can see why people might want to hold cash. But is that a good idea? What are the pros and cons of tenor? Clearly cash of new belly any interest, particularly with rates. Well, they are today. And if you're holding it in the stocks, and shares eyeso- that portion can earn no return. Also, you do risk it depreciating. If sterling moves in the wrong way, you obviously risk sitting on a on a pile of money that will be devaluing earning UN's thing. But on the flip side for anyone who does need money in the short to medium term that is the more sensible thing to do because you just don't know where markets will go. So financial advisors said moving anything between six months to to. As income in cash is could be good idea. If you do need that much money. And which regions of the world is saying influence of money as a result of this species uncertainty. What do you care investors favor?

In fact, the best performing sexes. And stock markets have been the US and China and really anything with a with a control towards big tech and Amazon and things like that. That's because we've just had this big bounce in tech stocks over the past two years, which has been by no means a smooth ride on US stocks. Also hugely benefited from things like Trump's tax reform, though, if you look at this three year period the outcome looks fairly positive for some potentially higher risk things. But in fact, when you can best been doing frantically pulling money out of UK equities. And in fact, pulling money out of stock markets, generally we've seen these huge outflows from funds all over the UK invested in most regions real consecutive months of outflows, which is very much not the norm particularly after some years of record inflows.

Positive territory, and that's despite all these fears mountain down UK domestic stocks being
